  • Summer has Arrived and Flower's are the Best Gifts for the Season

    It's hard to believe that spring has come, and it's already gone! This Saturday marks the summer solstice for us in the Northern Hemisphere. This solstice marks the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year. 

    Some of us have missed birthdays, births and anniversaries. Some of us didn't have a chance to spend Mothers Day with our mothers. Some of us lost loved ones. Our children won't be able to greet their fellow classmates a proper goodbye before Summer and show their appreciation to their teacher's hard work. Our teens won't have a proper graduation, nor a prom. 

    An excellent way to keep our bond and connections healthy despite the imposed distancing is to make gestures of appreciation for the important people in our lives. We happen to believe that flowers are just perfect for conveying warmth, care and love.
